The San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League has signed goaltender Dov Grumet-Morris to a one-year contract extension.
Dov was drafted in the fifth round, 161st overall, by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. Grumet-Morris played collegiately at Harvard University before turning professional in 2005. He was part of the Central Hockey League’s Laredo Bucks championship team in 2005–06 in what turned out to be impressive enough for him to get an ECHL contract. In 2006–07 he played for the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones, earning call-ups to the AHL’s Portland Pirates, Hamilton Bulldogs, and Manitoba Moose. He was signed to a contract by the National Hockey League’s Nashville Predators on July 2, 2007. He started the season with the Cyclones and played the second half on call-up to the Milwaukee Admirals.
For the 2008–09 season Grumet-Morris signed with Graz 99ers of the Erste Bank Hockey League. He spent another season in Austria with Jesenice before signing with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL on October 18, 2010. Last season, in his first year with the Rampage, Grumet-Morris played in 19-straight games (12-6-1) to help the club to their third playoff berth in franchise history. The Panthers was impressed with the way he played, bringing him back for this season where he has a 12-18-4 record this year, along with a 2.98 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.
